Introducing my newest painting:
"Auntie Jo's Urban Peacock."

This painting ended up taking me a lot longer to paint than I thought it would.  However, the subject matter matched my new goal of having many layers to see through in my paintings.  I got the idea for this one when I went to go visit a family friend in Orlando last summer.  She has a whole family of peacocks that live in her cul-de-sac.  So of course I had to take pictures of this pretty boy strutting his stuff for the girls, and then try to capture him in paint.  

In other news, now would be a great time to buy a painting!  My family would surely appreciate your support.

Detail of the painting.
"A  painting lives by companionship, expanding and quickening in the eyes
of the sensitive observer.  It dies by the same token.  It is therefore a
risky & unfeeling act to send it out into the world."
-Tiger's Eye Magazine 1947.
